    Raise the Minimum Wage in Lexington

    One of the key ways we can build an economy that works for everyone, and not just those at the top, would be to put more money in the pockets of workers. This would not only help those workers who would receive a wage increase, but it could also boost the economy.

    Raising the minimum wage from $7.25 to $10.10 would increase a minimum-wage worker’s annual earnings to $19,777.23 When workers’ wages increase, they have more money to spend on things such as microwaves, school supplies, and even child care. This boost in demand for goods and services will help stimulate the economy and create opportunities for all Americans.

    Make Louisville a Compassionate AND Friendly City

     We are urging the Metro Louisville and Jefferson County community to take a stand by passing a Friendly City Ordinance. A Friendly City Ordinance will significantly increase the safety of the county, while recognizing  the human dignity of each person. Louisville will be aligning with over 134 cities nationwide by initiating this ordinance and this will be one more reason why Louisville is truly the leader in being a Compassionate City. 

    The Friendly City Ordinance will : 
    • Affirm that Louisville/Jefferson County is Compassionate AND Friendly.
    • Prohibit the checking of immigration/citizenship status during the reporting of crimes. 
    • Prohibit the use of county funds to perform immigration checks (there is already a federal system in place for everyone booked in a jail).
    • Ensure that persons cannot be stopped and then detained solely based on immigration status, perceived status, perceived national origin or ability to speak English, or based on their name by anyone employed by Louisville/Jefferson County.
    Tell the Louisville Metro Council that Jefferson County needs a Friendly City Ordinance to be Friendly AND Compassionate.
